Studio XPS 8100, video card upgrade

I am trying to play the Civilization 6 game on my old computer so I need to upgrade the video card

this is what is on the comp now =

ATI Radeon HD 5670

Intel Core i5 CPU 650 @ 3.20GHz


Windows 7


Dell website don't have any compatible video cards on it, my computer building skills are basic. Will the comp support something better?  if so what?

Have a look at this forum post. And did you mean XPS 8100 and not 1800?

<Correct! The specifications match the Studio XPS 8100. Changed the title. DELL-Chris M>

First, try updating the driver for your Video card. That may help you to play the civilization 6 game on your PC much better. As mentioned on the post before me (by the OP of that thread) that even upgrading the drivers helps the cause, so try it.

Once you checked and, if needed, installed a newer ATI Radeon HD 5670 driver, go here and run the systemrequirementslab, "Can I Run Civilization 6" and see what they say about your current build. Let us know the result.

I run that for all games on my Area-51 R2 just to see the results. I posted below a screenshot of the Shadow Warrior 2 results.
